Putin said the words that mean he aims to break up the global nature of the worldwide web: he just branded the network a “CIA project” during a media conference in St Petersburg. Russian president believes that the US overseas espionage agency had originally set up the Internet and is still developing it.
Indeed, Vladimir Putin has long hinted that he wanted a Russian-run alternative to the Internet. He wasn’t the only one to want that, though – the idea has gained ground in Germany, Brazil and other countries in the light of the revelations by Edward Snowden (who remains in Putin’s country and under his protection, by the way) about the extent to which the NSA has infiltrated popular social media.
During a recent national Q&A session, Putin batted away a question from Edward Snowden about whether Russia also uses such surveillance practice, as the US did. Putin said he hopes they don’t do that as Russia doesn’t have as much money as they do in the United States. He did acknowledge though that there was surveillance of criminals and potential terrorists. However, as a former head of the country’s FBI, he should have known the things better than just saying “I hope we don’t”.
Of course, in any country a local system could make it easier for the domestic intelligence services to monitor and control traffic. For example, the worldwide Internet offers a platform for Russian opposition groups denied a voice on the local television and radio. Examples are everywhere: the mayor of the Russia’s 4th largest city, Yekaterinburg, had to win the election with the help of online propaganda only, as they didn’t allow him a minute on the air and on TV, or a line in newspapers – in clear violation of all the laws. This is another story – a love story, by the way, and not between the mayor and the city, – but we are talking about Internet here. At the same media conference in St Petersburg, Russian president referred directly to the most popular local search engine, Yandex, which caused its shares to plummet. He claimed the “CIA project” keeps developing and that his citizens needed to be protected from it. It seems that his remarks corresponded with a law passed by the local Parliament last week requiring foreign social media sites to keep their servers in Russia and store all data about the users for at least 6 months.
In the meantime, the founder of the most popular social network in the country was forced out of the company and revealed that the network is controlled by business executives close to Putin now. Apparently, Russian president is everywhere, not just Ukraine, these days.

|Putin can t stop becoming a bigger idiot and lier at every turn .|
|yeah i would go with putin.every word of our search or over chat is being watched by cia or us govt.and there should be no doubt.even the cia agents confess that.american should not behave like their govt or agency is innocent.|
|CIA and NSA to be accurate although there has since the cold war of the 60`s always been tapping the control of it globally has only really been possible since around 2000 when Bill Binney bailed out of R+D at the NSA because they were spying domestically on their own people and the CIA/NSA whitepaper came out on how they planned to (with the help of overseas partnerships)take over the internet in their Global Cyber strategy fascist conspiracy.|
By no means let us not forget the premier Mr Putin who has his grip on the reins in his own country and no one had any media coverage of his daughters growing up until recently and they must be in their 30`s now and such media included the internet,newspapers,fashion magazines etc,so who would you trust with your privacy and security,me personally none of them,they have niether right or need to know what we do ,where we search or how our ISP`s keep us and our data safe,that is living in and under a Regime and restricts the very freedom and creativity that has been afforded us with a free internet.

|Putin can't open his mouth without spewing nonsense and lies. “I hope we don’t”, lol. I bet he would love to have a Russian internet just so he could wrap an iron grip around it. He's just mad he doesn't have enough control over the existing Internet.|
Wish I could get a private room with this guy. I could take care of that trouble maker real slow, and enjoy doing it.
|Wow, the internet is a CIA Project? Lol!|
|Sure the US Government(NSA, CIA, whatever) might read what we say online but at least they let us say it. Russia and all the other countries talking about wanting a separate internet only want to use it for their own political agendas so they can control and censor it as they please.|
|i for one as a american who isnt a terrorist, criminal, <maybe a pirate> dont mind if im being listened to or SPYED on....close to 400 millon americans now i think, i for one would rather have someone SPYING for bad guys even if it does include listening to grandmas conversation about her favorite apple pie recipe.........i agree with post 11, they might listen to what they say but atleast we CAN say it ;>|
|The CIA has created the internet solely to hook Putin on gay porn. Job done, CIA!|

Frankly, as I was reading this here article I was laughing out loud: seriously - stop putting nonexistent news on the spot! I thought this place is not the place for propaganda, but i was mistaken. How can any person believe in such rubbish? Hey people! Stop believing everything you hear in "the news", because you are being fooled. These words were taken out of the context and formulated to sound silly. Russian president was talking about placing Russian servers in Russia, not abroad. Don't believe in propaganda and you won't be fooled.

|sneaky cia.... i thought it was mi6 that created the internet|
|i think everyone would agree, if the world had to pick the country to trust or to be the worlds police, they would pick the US.|
nobody in their right mind would want russia or china to be in the same position as the US:
at least the US isn't going into other countries and annexing them or keeping them.
history has proven several times that the US only goes in, the rebuild them and leaves.
sometimes a country thinks hey, lets give the US a reason to come in and destroy us so they will rebuild us better than we were at their expense.
there was even a movie about that called the "mouse that roared".
god only knows what the russians and chinese are doing or plan to do, at least we know what the US is doing.
